Green Idea: Turn Your Tote Bags Into Throw Pillows

Even though we still occasionally forget to take our reusable bags to the grocery store, it's not for lack of bags. Now we have too many tote bags, actually. So it was fun to stumble upon this cool idea for reusing them as throw pillows...

This little craft project from NotCot actually looks easy enough that we'd feel comfortable tackling it. Simply take an old pillow, or pillow insert, shove it into a tote bag you don't use (preferably one with a cool design) and sew it up.

Now the most important question: To keep the bag handles or to remove them?
